    Aloha and Happy Friday,

    I’m trying to wrap my head around an error my University accessibility checker is giving me for a recent GP/GB pro build.

    “Text not included in an ARIA landmark”

    Hard to tell if I’m doing something wrong (like hooking elements into the wrong places, or not adding an aria-label to my Site Footer element) … or if maybe it’s more of a theme-related issue outside my control?

    Any advice on where I should start to remediate this issue?

    The site has otherwise sailed through the checker … and all dings, since fixed, were caused by me πŸ™‚

    Much thanks for any insight you can offer on ‘ARIA landmarks’

    Hi there,

    I ran a WAVE test against the site and it didn’t flag anything specific.
    Does your accessibility checker provide any further details on that warning ?

    Aloha David,

    According to the checker (Siteimprove), the biggest culprit is the custom Site Footer, which is a:

    Block Element, Element type >> Site Footer

    The other culprit is Titles falling outside the ‘Main’ landmark … I’m working on that one.

    Thanks!

    Aloha David,

    Sure am …

    GP 3.1.3

    GP Premium 2.1.2

    GB Pro 1.2.0

    I found a Chrome extension that outlines the landmarks (http://matatk.agrip.org.uk/landmarks/)

    Aria Landmarks

    The Nav/Header gets wrapped, and so does the content.

    It’s the Site Footer element that seems to be un-wrapped by a landmark.

    Thanks!

    If you edit your Block Element Footer, and select the parent Container Block, in its sidebar settings you can select the Element Tag name:

    https://docs.generateblocks.com/article/container-overview/#element-tag

    What happens if you set that to Footer ?
